Webinar Recorded - Calculating Bandwidth / Storage

Author: John Honovich, Published on May 15, 2013

The most common technical request we hear from our members is how to properly calculate bandwidth / storage for video surveillance systems. It's hard to do correctly as at least 6 key factors impact the calculation, with no calculators being able to build in every variable. Plus, mistakes can be very costly both for overloading networks or falling short of the amount of storage you really need.

We held a live webinar on May 21st with more than 75 attendees. Here's the recording:
